Music is incredible. It can excite hundreds, and unite thousands. But as an industry, it has been slow, complicated, and disparate. While the tech world has moved into the future, the music industry continues to be shaped by inefficient systems of the past. At Utopia we believe there is a better way. Which is why today we are setting out to transform the entire industry; creating new revenue streams, consolidating the data and decluttering the admin. Unlocking the industry’s full potential by unifying it all in one truly holistic space. Some might call that a Utopia.
Funnily enough, so do we. Welcome to Utopia. Where music lives.
WHAT UTOPIANS DO
The open secret is that the music industry is struggling with the very basics of music accounting: What was played, when and where? Who should get paid and how much?
Utopia Music is bridging the data gap by connecting global consumption, accurate metadata, and fast payments to an industry-wide trust platform. Our goal is to unlock creative value and enable Fair Pay For Every Play to make a better world for Music. The solutions we offer do not threaten to usurp the role of industry incumbents - it is about bringing transparency in the industry and supporting efficient royalty collection for all.
As a Business Analyst at Utopia Music, you will initially touch on such a wide range of responsibilities and tasks that you will have the unique opportunity to develop this role where your skills fit best within the team. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with every business unit within the company on topics such as tailored market research, revenue forecasts, deliveries to clients, and even commercially focused due diligence reports on potential M&A opportunities. This is a great opportunity to grow your career in a direction that you can steer within a very fast growing company!
You will report to the Business Analyst Manager and work with a team of business analysts that operate as a functional team within the commercial department, meaning you are part of a team that is not directly affiliated to any one business unit, but is a service provider of sorts to all the business units.
Provide tailored market intelligence research answering to the specific needs of each business unit, answering some of the most pressing questions facing the business.
Create forecasts to assess various business opportunities and strategically advise commercial directors
Complete in depth analysis of the commercial operations of potential M&A targets and prepare concise reports for the M&A team.
Update company wide KPI reporting dashboards
A minimum of 2 - 3 years of experience in a business analyst role is preferable
Knowledge of the music industry (specifically copyright and royalty flows) is a huge plus
Numerical and financial literacy is important as you will often be working with financial data
You are good at forging professional relationships and maintaining a rapport with the commercial directors
You have good organisational and administrative skills, as a business analyst faces multi faceted requests and needs to ensure all work is effectively stored.
You are a self starter and someone who manages yourself as though you are the leader of a one man team. You will operate with a large degree of autonomy and will carry the responsibilities and accountability that comes with this.
Fluent in English, other languages are plus! The more the merrier
You are attentive to detail. Be a detective, you will constantly need to be asking the right questions and creatively searching for the answers.

At the Stockholm office we have a ping pong table and a gym in the basement and people are encouraged to use them both. We also have a generous wellness grant for anyone who prefer to do other things.
☕️ Breakfast every morning
Every morning we gather around the bar for breakfast. It is of course voluntary but the coffee is great.
👾 A bunch of nerds
We love what we do and we do what we love. So there will be a lot of interesting discussions going on about pretty much anything connected to music or tech and a lot of Star Wars references to acompany those.
🏰 A little here and a little there
We love to work together. Where exactly that is at the moment is less important.
Work @ Utopia
Do you like to work in teams with a lot of individual responsibility? Yes, we know it sound cliché but this is also how it actually is.
Every morning after breakfast we gather in our teams to plan the day, assign tasks to kickstart the days. Agile, fast and inventive is how we like it. That also gives us room to pair up or hold a workshop if we need help in finding the best solution.
A helping hand and a good coffee might just be what we need to get things done.
